Racist KZN guest house owner faces crimen injuria charges, as ANC members march

Sodwana Bay Guest House owner, Andre Slade has had charges of illegal operation, crimen injuria and tax evasion laid against him.

This comes after the KZN resident said his establishment was not taking bookings from black people or government employees.

KwaZulu-Natal Tourism MEC Sihle Zikakala has opened the case against Slade, while members of the ANC Youth League marched outside his premises.

It is alleged that Slade is not paying tax, and the local chiefs have committed to evicting him from the land, reports EWN's Clement Manyathela.

Manyathela unpacked how Slade and his partner responded to questions regarding racial discrimination.

He says he believes in a hierarchy where white people are on top... He says that he is a king and that black people must call him such.
